There is a proud history of throwing in New Zealand. The Athletics New Zealand Home of Throws is a dedicated throwing facility designed to allow all New Zealanders of any ability, from the community through to High Performance, a chance to either start out in throwing or train to become the best they can be.​​​​​​​

Stage one of development at the Athletics New Zealand Home of Throws offers facilities for anyone starting out in any of the throws. This facility caters to both able body and para-athletes and is available for use on request.

The facilities include:

  • International standard Discus/Hammer cage
  • 2 x Shot Put throwing circles
  • Seated (Para) athlete Discus and Shot Put facilities
  • Area for training drills
  • Undercover warm-up/stretching area

Stage two plans for the Home of Throws will provide a facility that will be arguably the best throwing facility in the world.  Stage two would see the building of an indoor/outdoor throwing area for all four throws, including a gym area technical analysis.​​​​​​​
